It's good to be back.

5 Reasons I Came Back To The Odyssey

Writing articles once a week can take a toll on a creator here at The Odyssey. Ideas start to run out, time starts to become an issue, and eventually it becomes the right decision to leave. Luckily, I was given the opportunity to come back to the Flagler College team and write articles again for the spring semester.

1. It is a great way to build my resume

After I graduate from college, I'm looking to work as a publicist. When you're in the communication field, employers want to see that you have a firm understanding of how to write. Writing articles every week allows me to work on my skills as a writer.

2. My voice can be heard

The Odyssey gives me the freedom to write about anything that I can think of. This gives me the chance to make my voice heard. Our platform is also unique in the fact that our articles are spread via social media.

3. I can potentially make some money

No one was ever mad when they made some extra cash doing something they enjoy. Every week, depending on how many views the team gets as a whole we have the potential to make a decent amount of money.

4. I enjoy challenging myself to do better

Having to write an article every single week, can prove to be difficult at times. Sometimes there just isn't enough time in the week to physically write an article. Sometimes writers block is impossible to get past and nothing seems to make sense when you go to write the article. But I challenge myself to write the best article I can weekly.

5. The team here at Flagler is amazing

When I left Odyssey last semester, it was a difficult decision to make. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough time in my schedule to create articles that would make the Flagler team better. The team here is absolutely fantastic and work hard to write articles that resinate with people. Being part of such an outstanding team made the decision to come back that much easier.

I'm super excited to be back on the Flagler College Odyssey team!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
